3ft long and deep pothole by a drain

Reported via desktop in the Road Defect category anonymously at 14:17, Thu 2 February 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4196793.

Travelling from St Mary Cray towards Crockenhill via Crockenhill Rd (B258), there is a huge pothole just before Crouch Farm. The pothole has been there at least 2 years as the you can see it from Google street view from 2021. Since 2021 it has increased in size considerably and is completely unavoidable when a car is coming in the opposite direction. As a result of hitting this pothole my tyre was damaged beyond repair and needed replacing. Can I please have the necessary information needed to claim back the cost of my tyre.
